Yonkers PD probe shows $1,800 in porn charges to school TV

Posted: Updated:
YONKERS -

The former superintendent of Yonkers schools bought almost $2,000 in pornography on a district cable box before resigning for purported health issues two years ago, city police say.

Michael Yazurlo has denied the allegation, and he filed a lawsuit against city officials claiming that he was forced to quit after they threatened to leak the allegations to reporters in 2015.

News 12 received a report from the city, which shows Yazurlo downloaded 109 pornographic videos onto a Yonkers school district cable box.

The downloads happened over a nine-month period in 2015. The police report says Yazurlo charged $1,800 in adult films to the Yonkers Board of Education.

All of this happened inside the district headquarters at 1 Larkin Center, according to investigators.

Yazurlo is not facing any criminal charges and his attorney says his client never downloaded porn. They've since filed a lawsuit against the city and school district.

News 12 obtained the police report following a request made under the Freedom of Information Act.
